Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

James Jennings Photo
Hi, S. Barger, would it be ok for me to use the very excellent photo that you took at the Fayetteville National Cemetery in Washington County, Arkansas of James Jennings, Company I 26th Indiana.
I do not know how to link sites to my ancestry page so I would cite as follows:
Plot: SECTION 8 SITE 649
Find A Grave Memorial # 15125227

Thank you for your time,

RE: Maggie Coots
Thank you for your kind words. I always hope, as you do, that the memorial pages and grave marker photos will help someone to connect with their past.
I have transferred Maggie Coots memorial page to you. I am not finished yet with all of the Nashville cemetery but perhaps there might be other burials there you might be interested in.

Maggie Coots

I have copied and pasted your bio information you sent to me for Maggie Coots. To answer your questions no I am not related to Maggie. My grandparents are buried in the Nashville cemetery and I am just making an effort to make memorial pages for every grave that does not have one.

Since you are related, somewhat, to Maggie I would be happy to transfer her page to you if would like for me too. Just let me know if you want to maintain it.

Thanks for your input.

RE: M F Johnson
I inlarged that old stone and it looks like a M V to me. Since Martin Vernon Johnson b. 1837 died during the civil war leaving a wife Macy Evans Johnson (Her mother is Sarah Mankins Evans-Hanna) and 4 ch. and Martin Vernon Johnson Sr. is his grandfather. I thought it must be him.

RE: Graham
Regarding the stone for Susan Graham, I know think she may be the daughter of Ewing & Sarah Graham. Ewing was the son of Littleton & Catharine. I can't confirm, but you can tell that the name "Sarah" shows up on the stone. And Ewing was married to a Sarah.
